Imagine basking in the sun and staring down at a pool right now. The light refracting off the undulating surface of the water welcomes your beach ready body. That’s what I pictured when I saw the powder blue hue on these jeans. With subtle bleach effects tastefully scattered throughout, it looks like you are wearing the pool. Do not mistake these jeans for faded vintage blue jeans. Here’s a rundown of the Selly, after wearing the jeans on and off for two weeks:
The fit/feel: I did the bend, stretch, climb, and sit test. The jeans did not pinch me in the hip or knee areas, and the waistband never puckered out. I like the padded fabric strip inside the waistband, which adds extra comfort around the hips. Made from 73% Supima cotton and 27% Elasterell-P X-Fit denim technology, the jeans are not only very soft and durable, but will offer excellent stretch recovery and maintain the original dimensions of the jeans.
Sizing: I tried on a size 26, which fit me just the way I like it (snug, but not tight). If you want a more fitted look, size down. When it doubt, try on Marc Allison Jeans at a local boutique. I chose to wear my Selly Powder rolled up, like a slim Boyfriend jean. What do you think?
Craftsmanship: With coppery orange lock stitching and signature zigzag stitch accents on the hip, these jeans have the right components for the new go-to warm weather jean. Marc Allison Jeans’ logo is embossed on the back right pocket, offering subtle branding to maintain a clean look.
Denim Therapy reviewed the Michi denim leggings in 2010, and the Selly Straight leg jean did not disappoint either. The verdict: well-made, great fit and a definite must-get for spring.
